ONTAP 9.14

to Japanese version

Overview of NFS and SMB file and directory naming dependencies

File and directory naming conventions depend on both the network clients’ operating systems and the file-sharing protocols, in addition to language settings on the ONTAP cluster and clients.

The operating system and the file-sharing protocols determine the following:

  • Characters a file name can use

  • Case-sensitivity of a file name

ONTAP supports multi-byte characters in file, directory, and qtree names, depending on the ONTAP release.
